A GALLANT Mangotsfield were denied a hat-trick of wins in the final of the Somerset Floodlit League’s Roger Stone Memorial Cup at the Woodspring Stadium.

In a highly-entertaining game with lots of end-to-end football, Weston opened the scoring on 34 minutes when visiting keeper Mitch Norman could only punch Tyler Davis’ deep cross and George King was on hand to score from close range.

To their credit, Mangotsfield kept battling away and were rewarded on 62 minutes when Josh Bennett scored in a scramble from a corner. After that, the visitors tried hard for an equaliser, but the Weston defence held out.
